The Jakab and Komor Square Synagogue in Subotica is a remarkable Hungarian Art Nouveau synagogue in Subotica, Serbia. It was built in 1901-1902 during the administration of the Kingdom of Hungary (part of Austria-Hungary), according to the plans of Marcell Komor and Dezső Jakab replacing a smaller and less elaborate synagogue. It is one of the finest surviving pieces of religious architecture in the art nouveau style. It served the local Neolog community.In 1974 the synagogue was designated a Monument of Culture; in 1990 it was designated a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.The synagogue has long been plagued by conservation issues, though a decade-long partnership between the government and World Monuments Fund that ended in 2010 rendered the building watertight after years of water infiltration. Work on the restoration of the facades is the next phase of work on the synagogue.OverviewThe synagogue of Subotica is the only surviving Hungarian art nouveau Jewish place of worship in the world. Erected by a prosperous Jewish community of some 3000 souls between 1901 and 1903, it highlights the double, Hungarian-Jewish identity of its builders, who lived in a multi-ethnic, but predominantly Catholic city, which was the third largest of the Hungarian Kingdom and the tenth largest of the Habsburg Empire.

  • Accidentally hit the old Hungarian Synagogue yet (she's running, needs serious repair), but very original, beautiful. 2 floor (lower for men, top female), organ. Decorated with stylized images of flowers. Invokes any bright feelings, a sense of joy, admiration. It just on the day of our arrival in the evening held a free concert at the Festival of Jewish culture, spoken Ensemble and choir of Szeged (2-th Symphony of Mendelssohn). Good acoustics, great music, liked it.

  • Really big synagogue not far (not more than 5 minutes) from the city center. nterior is still being renovated which means it's closed to the public, but exterior looks really beautiful. 
  • Ever since I was a child I had wanted to see the synagogue, because I could see it was beautiful under the dust, but it was always closed down - in general, or for repairs. I finally got to see the in...  read more »
